Question
suggestions for 4th rc airplane( preferably something that looks like a jet fighter).

pretty much what the title sais, i have 2 ezstars( my dad obliterated one, what you get from trying to teach your dad to fly ), and i'm getting the bird of prey in a month, now i'm a fighter jet freak as my account sais, so i'm looking for something that looks like a real jet fighter, f-86, f-4, f-18, f-22, su-27, ect. i have my eye on the rc superpowers f-22, but any suggestions on a good airplane would be much apreciated . it will probably be a little while till i buy it, but i would still be nice to have many suggestions beforehand so i can start recieving info early. i don't really care if it uses a regular external motor or a ducted fan, something with $250, something within 100-200 dollars is mostly what i'm looking for.

oh ya, i've seen those babies before, hehehehehehehehehe, though, i still like the r?c superpowers f-22 raptor, its a good price, and a nice airplane, and i'm not buying it just because i'm a f-22 fanatic. already using equipment i have its 105 dollars or cheaper, check it out, it has thrust vectoring too.

I think I would like it better if it was an EDF instead of the pusher prop, but the choice is yours.

Walkera F-16. Big (37"), durable and easily repairable with regular CA (EPP), flies easily like a trainer almost, and CHEAP ($120.00 with fan and BL motor).

Here's mine.

Who's responsable for this beautiful looking beast?

http://flying-hobby.com/catalog/prod...oducts_id=1505

At $99 with motor AND fan--better looking (Much) then the Walkera, with full flying stabs, and still a decent size with a 36" wing..I'm drooling here.

Once I get my P-38 put together, I'll be looking for a jet. This looks like my ticket! What do you guys think?

A little balsa or scrap foam would fix that.
